Marking Policy

“Imagine what a difference it would make if all students knew what they were good at and knew what they needed to do to improve.”

At Ark William Parker Academy we recognise that high quality marking will support the students in knowing what they need to do to improve their learning. It is the agreed expectation of the College that student books will be marked regularly.  Good assessment for learning will provide the student with the pointers for improving their work and will ensure that the teacher can see that all work is appropriately challenging. Ensuring that students have time to respond to comments and providing opportunities for one to one dialogue within the lesson will support our school in ensuring that progress over time is rapid and sustainable.
